[ cheers and applause ] an economic recovery has begun. [ cheers and applause ] america's possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands. youth and drive, diversity and openness, an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention. my fellow americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it so long as we seize it together.

in math and science. teachers have more support and flexibility to respond to student's individual needs and standards and accountability are high. but achievement gaps persist. and they will until we go deeper. every educator knows that reading sufficiency by the third grade determines academics. achievement gaps begin to form in the early years. today in massachusetts only 61% of all third graders are proficient in english language arts. for african-american 38%. hispanic 38%. toddlers, ingrant -- infants, other precoolers, 30,000 of them are on the wait list for early education opportunities. let's ensure that every child in massachusetts has access to high quality early education.
